Skill Level Beginner
- IT experts, engineers, developers and data scientists. These technical professionals deliver specific skill sets and organizations depend on them for solutions that create a competitive edge, but almost all technical decisions made today are also business decisions. They're intrinsically linked, and that's why effectively managing technical professionals is essential for business success. I'm Sara Canaday. I'd like to welcome you to this course. As a former operations executive, I experienced firsthand the growing partnership between technical innovation and business operations.
Now through my work as a leadership coach, I've helped hundreds of managers inspire and motivate their technical experts to achieve greater results. The strategies I've helped them to implement are the ones I'll be sharing with you. As we work together through this course, you'll discover how to identify the characteristics and tendencies of your technical professionals, their unique perspectives and challenges. Then you'll learn exactly which management and coaching strategies will allow you to maximize their contributions.
If you apply the principles you learn in this course, I'm confident that you will see tangible results. You'll cultivate the right conditions for your technical professionals to thrive and pave the way for them to participate at a higher level. Thank you again for joining me to learn more about managing technical professionals. Let's get started.
